Customer Review

on May 7, 2011
In the hands of a more talented writer this book could have been pretty good. Unfortunately Ms. Hoffman is not capable of pulling off the long form. Putting a bunch of chronological and spatially dispersed vignettes in one book does not make it a novel. Also some of the characters were so poorly drawn as to be less than even one-dimensional despite the fact that key areas of the plot revolved around them. This book felt like an authors attempt to explore events that were not comprehensible to her that at the completion of the manuscript she continued to not understand. I am going to stop reviewing this book now as the more I think about it the less I like it and I don't want to drop it to two stars...
